Long before the United States of America was divided by the Civil War, the evils of slavery drove abolitionists to take up arms against that most pernicious institution.  The forty-eight cards in this deck treat the history of abolitionism biographically and thematically.  Half the cards provide close-ups of women and men who worked to free America’s slaves--writers, editors, activists, underground railway conductors, and leaders of slave rebellions.  The other half include detailed essays on such subjects as the Amistad mutiny, abolitionist newspapers, the underground railroad, and the role of black women in the abolitionist movement.  3 ¼” x 4”.  Published with the New-York Historical Society.
